Luca Guadagnino, Seth Rogen Teaming for Adaptation of 'Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood'



Luca Guadagnino is set to team up with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to make a narrative film from the Matt Tyrnauer-directed documentary feature Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood for Searchlight Pictures. Rogen and Goldberg will write the script while Guadagnino will direct the film.

The documentary feature focuses on Scotty Bowers, a bisexual World War II combat veteran who becomes a hustler and date-arranger for gay Hollywood stars from the 1940s up until the AIDs epidemic of the 1980s. The documentary is based on Bowers' book entitled Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars. In the book, Bowers describes how he fixed these liaisons through running a gas station in the midst of Hollywood studios. Bowers was beloved by the industry, as he created a safe environment for gay members of Hollywood to hook up in secret, which could have been dangerous otherwise.

Tyrnauer's entertainment company, Altemeter Films, will be joined as producers by Point Grey Pictures.
